Monitor recommendations. What's good?

Yeah kids man... my burn in was an e/i logo that is shown on all educational content around here. It's a dull gray so I'm not sure why it happened, especially since I'm sure he didn't watch that much tv back then. And the 2008 plasma I had before then never had an issue, despite using it as a pc monitor.

Can anybody recommend a VESA desk mount which is compatible with the Asus ROG Swift PG248Q (or other monitors with a similar pointed/peaked back design)?

Just spent about an hour and a half trying to make this one work and the spacers included for use on monitors that don't have flat backs aren't big enough, it's impossible to slide the display with VESA bracket on to the arm mount because the bottom "peak" on the display gets in the way.

I got an Acer Predator XB271H recently. I loved it at first, but then I started notcing a bit of shimmering with the image. I wouldn't describe it as flickering (I don't see any black lines), but more like it looks like the picture is moving constantly. My girflriend said she can't really notice anything, but I had a hard time of explaining it to her; she thinks I'm just looking too much into it.

I hooked up my old monitor (a Samsung TV!) and I think I notice the same thing, then I put it on the PS4 and it doesn't seem to do it, so I'm hopeful that the monitor isn't faulty! My PC has been faulty the past month anyway, so it will probably be a hardware issue.

Out of curiosity though, for anyone else that may have (or had) an Acer Predator monitor, if it was the monitor, would this sort of problem be something to do with the backlight? Also, when I start the monitor up with the power switch, the Predator logo comes on the screen. It's not smooth though, it's like the logo gets brighter in stages, sort of stuttery frames. Does this happen to you? Or should that logo be loading in smoothly? This is my first time getting an actual PC monitor (an expensive one too!), and with most of the things I spend a lot of money on I tend to get a little bit worried if something is wrong with it.

I had a 248Q at one point and it was mounted on an Ergotron LX. I don't recall having any issues getting it mounted, but it's also a flexible arm not a straight post style stand like you linked and it's also way more expensive as I recall. I got them on sale I think for $100 a piece at the time.

Fixed it in the quote.

You had an extra ] bracket in there. Left in the "Your text to link here....]" bit.
